Citarasa Nipah showcases delectable traditional Malaysian favourites in time for Raya

KUALA LUMPUR, 4 March 2022 – EQ returns with Citarasa Nipah, an extensive buffet spread of delectable traditional Malaysian dishes. Eponymously named after EQ’s award-winning restaurant, Citarasa Nipah features classic kampung flavours drawn from well-guarded heritage recipes and prepared under the discerning eye of EQ’s Chef de Cuisine, Chef Ali.

From 3 April – 1 May 2022, guests are able to enjoy time-tested favourites including Rendang Daging Lebaran, Siakap Tiga Rasa Nusantara and Serawa Durian Selera Timur. With such an extensive array of dishes, Citarasa Nipah is the ideal choice for family reunions, corporate gatherings and get-togethers with friends.

Indulge in such crowd-pleasers as the Kerabu Limau Bali, Udang Harimau dan Kacang, as well as the tantalising seafood on ice section which includes myriad fresh selections of oysters, mussels, tiger prawns, baby scallops and more.

The carving station will feature succulent Kambing Golek and heartier favourites can be found at the main buffet area with dishes like Ayam Goreng Mamu, Gulai Daging Masak Lemak Cili Padi, Udang Gulai Nyonya and Assam Pedas. Chef Ali’s signature Kambing Masak Beriani is another popular favourite with tender, succulent cuts of lamb cooked in a medley of spices and accompanied by Nasi Beriani and Dal Sayuran.

Another mainstay, Signature EQ Satay, is a true classic beloved by all and will also make a star appearance at Citarasa Nipah. Our satay was recently featured as one of Top Ten Malaysian Dishes You Need To Try by Travel + Leisure Magazine last year.

Chef Ali has more than thirty stellar years of culinary experience and is looking forward to showcasing Citarasa Nipah’s wide selection. “Our offerings explore Malaysia’s rich gastronomic legacy. Some recipes date back to more than a century and are passed down from generation to generation. Our guests can now enjoy these delicious traditional dishes and make precious time for friends and family while we do all the work.”

“Citarasa Nipah stands as the cornerstone for excellent traditional Malaysian fare and this year is no different with Chef Ali and the team outdoing themselves on the culinary front,” says Chef Frederico Michieletto, EQ’s Executive Chef.
